Our Environmental Commitment

At Deerfoot IT, we recognise the urgent need for environmental stewardship and sustainability in today's world.  
That's why we've partnered with Ecologi, a platform dedicated to making a positive impact on our planet. Through our partnership, we're actively contributing to reforestation projects, carbon offset initiatives, and sustainable development programs around the globe. By supporting Ecologi, we're taking meaningful steps toward a greener future and demonstrating our commitment to climate action.

Social  Impact

We are deeply committed to protecting and preserving the Earth's incredible wildlife. That's why we've forged a partnership with the Born Free Foundation, a leading force in wildlife conservation. Together with Born Free, we're actively supporting efforts to safeguard endangered species, combat wildlife trafficking, and promote habitats that foster biodiversity. By being a part of this mission, we're making a tangible impact on the well-being of animals around the world. We have committed to donating £1 to Born Free each time we send a candidate's CV to a recruiting client.
